In 2013, longtime friends Nicolas Grosbois and Philippe Mesnier purchased 12 hectares of vines in Azay-le-Rideau, an excellent, though relatively unknown terroir a few kilometers east of Chinon. This is a region known for making rich and decadent Chenin Blanc. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then gets moved to 3-4 year old French Oak barrels. The end result is a highly  aromatic,  powerful, and seductive wine that goes well with aged soft cheeses and even holds up well to a ribeye, and seafood. All in all, it is incredibly food friendly and a wonderful bottle!
